Aboriginal Health Human Resources Initiative (AHHRI)

In the 2010 Federal Budget, the government renewed its commitment to continue to address the acute shortages of First Nation, Inuit and Métis health human resources through the Aboriginal Health Human Resources Initiative (AHHRI). The AHHRI Program has been extended for a period of five years (2010-2015).

The renewed AHHRI is a five-year commitment to continue to develop and implement Health Human Resource strategies that will help to fulfill the unique needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis across Canada in a manner that respects their diversity.

The renewed AHHRI has identified two priority areas:
Priority 1: Increasing the numbers of First Nations, Inuit and Metis in health human resources;
Priority 2: Improving the skill levels and certification of health care workers serving First  
                 Nation and Inuit communities.
